Active Information Collection
Like many websites, this site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and so on).
Some areas of this site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features (such as e-mail alerts or newsletter subscriptions). You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what for.
Passive Information Collection
As you navigate through a website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies, Internet tags and navigational data collection.
This site uses Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet; it is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet) rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer). We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report statistical information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our site, and administer and improve the site.
A "cookie" is a bit of information that a website sends to your web browser that helps the site remember information about you and your preferences.
"Session" cookies are temporary bits of information that are erased once you exit your web browser window or otherwise turn your computer off. Session cookies are used to improve navigation on websites and to collect statistical information.
You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. You can also set your browser to block the placing of cookies at all, but you should realize that this can limit the use of our website or services.
You can find out more about cookies at www.cookiecentral.com/faq.
Use of registration details
To make use of our products and services users are generally required to register and provide registration details, such as name, address, postcode, gender, e-mail address and bank account number. The registration details are primarily used to send the user information concerning our services and to handle billing and direct debit where applicable.
If you subscribe to our e-mail alerts, we collect your e-mail address. This address will only be used for communicating with you and keeping you informed of new developments concerning the products and services of PostNL and other related companies if you have indicated that you wish to receive such information. If you no longer wish to receive this information you can unsubscribe [here] or by clicking the unsubscribe link included in every e-mail we send.
Access and Correction
To keep your personally identifiable information accurate, current, and complete, please contact us as about any incorrect information. We will update or correct personally identifiable information in our possession that you have previously submitted via this site.
We take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features on this site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.
